My Mastercard morning

Topping off the Mustang’s gas tank before heading out to dodge the 345,823,574 bikers in town for Bike Week: about $60 less than topping off the truck.

After sitting light-linen-clad, sensitive body part on sunbaked, black vinyl seat, the cost of getting short kid to stop screaming “Mama burned her peepee!” in parking lot: Happy Meal for lunch.

Finding one of those antique floor vents that blasts central AC in an upward direction: priceless.
